This was our second visit to Romer’s Burger Bar in Kitsilano. The restaurant’s perfect location on West 4th Avenue, right in the heart of Kits, makes it a convenient stop for us. We absolutely adored the Man’s Man Burger, Wild Salmon Burger and Fresh-Cut Sea Salt Fries, so we thought we’d return to see if the restaurant is consistent.
Plenty of mouth-watering choices are available on Romer’s Grab N Go menu. For example: Romer’s Burger of the Month, titled The Kitsilano Paleo Special, includes a lean turkey burger combined with plenty of nuts, berries and yams…Paleo stuff. Sits on top of their lettuce tower, with roasted beets, topped with apple wood bacon, fried egg and Romer’s roasted pepper salsa. Vine-ripened tomatoes and fresh sliced avocado on the side with red pepper drizzle. Haven’t heard of “Paleo” before? The Paleo Diet, short for Paleolithic Diet and also known as the Caveman Diet/ Stone Age Diet/ Hunter-Gatherer Diet, is a low-carb nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that our ancestors habitually consumed.
The Kitsilano Paleo Special did look mighty tempting, but it was missing one of the things I love about Romer’s Burger Bar — their delectable brioche burger buns!
As you know, I adore everything with truffle. So of course, I ordered the Truffle Fresh-Cut Fries ($7.00) with truffle oil and topped with parsley and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. These fries were heavenly, as you can imagine.
Americano ($11.00) – All-natural Heritage Farms range-fed Angus beef patty topped with iceberg lettuce leaf, fried cheddar planks, red onion, vine-ripened tomatoes, and served on a lightly griddled brioche bun with tasty garlic olive and pepperoncini on the side. The juicy hamburger patty is the star feature of this amazing burger, but its tasty toppings really take it to the next level.
Green Chili Chicken Cheddar ($12.00) – A free-run chicken breast smothered in Romer’s house-made green chili sauce, topped with fresh avocado, minced red onion, melted cheddar cheese and habanero pepper verdelait, and served on a slightly toasted brioche bun. Also accompanied by a side of pepperoncini and a scrumptious garlic green olive. The chicken was very moist and tender, while the chili sauce gave the burger a nice kick. Loved this one!
